I Hop#

I hop

I hop that the elastic on the next pair of socks I buy do not try to cut my legs off at the ankles.

I hop that the next time it rains that the power doesn’t go down in the middle of a post I am writing. cloud-01

I hop that I drink my next cup of coffee before it gets cold.


I hop that all our wishes come true.

I hop that the next time I watch the television news that I can smile at the fun the whole world is having.

I hop that Dellicia, my laptop, never crashes.

I hop that rabbit up there doesn’t have babies in my blog


What do youΒ hop for ?

  1. Good morning to you, my Favorite Ralph. I hop that you’re happy and well. Here IHOP is a restaurant that sells fattening pancakes, and IHOP that I don’t get too fat eating them. Your bunnies are adorable. IHOP that you continue to be creative (and funny), and that I can learn to be creative, and not get so carried away TRYING to be funny It always backfires on me when I’m think I’m being so clever. I get in trouble, then I’m not laughing, and neither is anyone else! So I’m hopping that I can curb my tongue. And for now, that’s as much hopping I can do before I fall asleep here with my cold cup of tea. Have a jolly day. πŸ™‚ Marsha πŸ™‚


    • Good morning to you my favourite Marsha. Don’t forget to drink your tea! Too late. It’s cold again. Would you like a rabbit or 100 as I am getting a bit overwhelmed here. You are funny all of the time, that’s why you have so many comments in your blog. I suppose I’ll have to find some lettuce and carrots for these little guys πŸ˜‰ Ralph xox


  2. IHOP for not waking early on the day I can sleep in and for a cute bunny. 8)


    • Shush everyone. Katie’s having a sleep in !!

      KATIE!!!! I’VE GOT A RABBIT FOR YOU !! Oooops!! πŸ˜‰ Ralph xox


      • *whispering so they can’t hear* Katie!! Maybe lucky for you but not the rabbit ! 😦


  3. I enjoyed so much… This is so lovely dear Ralph, great fun. Thank you, Thank you, have a nice day, love, nia


  4. IHOP that the washing machine doesn’t break down, and IHOP that the leak in the roof has been fixed


    • Hi Alastair. May I suggest never using the washing machine, that way it will never break down and put your finger in the hole in the roof like that little Dutch boy did with his dyke.


      • I know. I was going to reverse the saying but I thought better of it. πŸ˜‰ Have a great day Alastair. Ralph


  5. I hop you never change Ralph..you are such a sweet soul and lift me up ( which is a definite chore, I am a big woman) LOL. You are an absolute wonderful friend πŸ™‚


    • Hi dear Len. I just did my back in but I still want to lift you up. And so are you. A wonderful friend. Big hug. Ralph xox πŸ™‚


  6. That I could have that thunder lightning doohickey!! en garde!!! bares teefers!! cackles gleefully!! (might scare off that hopper)
    wait! it needs to have a fae on the top of it that goes weeeeeeeeeeeeee just after the lightning and shoots out a rainbow!

    I hope that I can have hopes without wanting where I am not, and the ability to take action on the ones that are good for me and not ungood for others.


    • You really love that cloud, don’t you Elisa? Right click on it. Select “Save Image As” and it’s yours. I hop your hops are good ones for all. Your friend. Ralph xox 😎


    • Thank you so much YC and I hop you are well and happy yourself πŸ˜€ Ralph xox


      • Awww….how did you make that cuteeeeee rabbit hops around??? Come, rabbit…come here….

        Thank you for your lovely blessings too!! Cheers~ πŸ˜€


      • The little bunnies are called animations. You can get them on the internet or there are creative programs where you can make them yourself


    • Hi Sydney. It’s possibly a time delay between comments and widgets, but maybe he is just a happy bunny πŸ˜€ Take care. Ralph


    • That’s very nice dear RoSy. And thanks for the coffee but not the work Ralph xox πŸ˜€


  7. I hop next time I buy underwear in a package that says–Buy 4, Get 2 Free that the free ones are the same size as the package indicates. I hop the next Knee Socks I buy are above my ankles.


    • I get exactly the same problem dear Alice. Shorts/pants I buy are so small that they are more like whalebone corsets than comfortable underwear. And socks the same. I hop that you are having a lovely week. Ralph xox πŸ™‚


  8. IHOP summer comes soon! bloody freezing in London today!


    • and how do I get a beautiful rabbit in my comment?

      • Oh thank you so much , love it ! Warmth…….and thanks for the bunny! Hop he does not get bored. πŸ™‚


  10. Okay, Ralph; where do I start…!?! Hmmmmmmm…
    I hop the bunnies continue to hop (like you), cause they are too cute (like you) and not hopping would bring sadness to so many.
    I hop that I am given enough energy to do my dancing this year, as well as my business work, as well as my WPeeing (yes, Ralph; WPeeing).
    I hop for world peace, and I gratefully accept this award…. Oh, scratch that one, Ralph. I got carried away for the momento…… πŸ™‚


    • Oh. Come on dear Carolyn!! I have Ute and OAIC bloody freezing in London, Alastair with a hole in his roof, Alice having problems with her underwear, Len has done my back in, I have missing “e’s”, bunnies everywhere and now you are WPeeing in my comments. Just a normal day’s blogging then for all of us. Big hug. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


    • That is a really lovely hop dear Heather. Do have a great week. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


    • It took a lot of training to freak you out. But you learned quickly and well πŸ˜‰


  11. I hop to visit Dubai soon to meet up with my cousin who’s moving there for 2years tomorrow. 😦


    • I hop you do as well dear Rynna. Be hoppy that you will πŸ˜€ Ralph xox

  12. Here’s hopping that you never run out of lettuce and carrots which are what keep bunnies hoppy, love Verena


    • I tried them on lettuce and carrots, Vesta, but they only seem to like “e’s” in “hope”. In all the other words they won’t touch the “e’s” Valencia. I hop that you have a hoppy weekend Poncha Villa. Big hug. Ralph xox


  13. I hop you find good homes for all these adorable punnys…and bunnies!
    love how they are taking over, perfectly shaped, in sync, well-done Ralph πŸ˜‰

    • I am so sorry LB.
      “I HOP” I Had One Pancake but I ate it πŸ˜‰ Take care. Ralph
